Executive summary: The Blind Sheikh
Involved with the Mujahadeen fight against the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan, his primary goal has always been the destruction of the governments of both Egypt and the United States. In the 1980s he was tortured and tried by Egyptian authorities on charges of issuing a fatwa against Anwar Sadat -- who later died at the hands of Egyptian Islamic Jihad, of which Abdel-Rahman was the spiritual leader. Inexplicably, Abdel-Rahman was brought into the United States by the CIA with a tourist visa. There, he maintained a terror cell that culminated in the first attack on the World Trade Center in 1993. He was convicted of conspiracy over those events, defended by William Kunstler.
